I really wanted to like this recipe, but it was rather a poor use of good ingredients in my mind. Followed the recipe exactly save for omitting the almonds per the 8-year-old and it baked up bland with a rather gummy texture. Adding insult to injury, the muffins came out positively welded to the paper cup liners! If it were tastier I would try it again with no liners, but I think I'll move on.
